ACTPhoto lets users capture and upload a photo of their face to submit to ACT. Beginning in October 2012, students registered to take the ACT are required to submit a photo of their face in order to take the test. Students will upload a photo of their face using their phone's camera or using an existing photo on their phone. On upload, ACTPhoto will verify whether the submitted photo is in fact a face and notify the user accordingly. Before final submittal, students must accept the "Photo Agreement" in order to submit their photo to ACT
What's New in Version 1.3.1
There is no problem with the app however...
I went to upload my photo as is the procedure... And instead of letting me upload it right to the website I had to download this app.... So, somewhat apprehensively I went to download this app and upload my photo... It asked permission for the app to use my location even when not in use, hell no. And to use my photos. i selected my picture and uploaded it. Then it singed me out... And here is my problem I can't download my ticket now 😑. There is simply nothing wrong with providing a standard government issue or school issue ID. And if you're going to go against convention, for no discernible reason don't make it so counter intuitive.
You'd think that one of the largest college placement tests in the nation would have their act together when it comes to creating an app that does nothing more than help you submit a picture. You'd be wrong. This app is horrible at the singular task for which it is designed, and features clunky and outdated aesthetics. The real back breaker is that I tried to submit the EXACT SAME picture I used for the SAT, but it didn't work. When I finally get a picture I think is suitable, I get slapped with "unexpected error" after "unexpected error". A novice could make a far simpler, and more effective means of submitting a picture than these paid professionals.
App is terrible
Keeping in mind all the information the ACT company expects us to know and be tested on, you would think that they could put together a better app than this. No matter what size or type of picture I upload, it always crops it horribly. It cuts out my hair and neck, so all you can see is my face, which does not meet the requirements for an appropriate picture. It doesn't allow you to crop the picture yourself. The app does it and does a terrible job. I would suggest that in the future, you allow us to manually crop the photo like in every other photo app. THIS APP IS POORLY DESIGNED.
